Tanking the line

Making a line on these games, it becomes a difficult chore because I don't have a complete handle on who is going to play and for how long.

Who should take it easy week 17

Between draft picks, injury prevention and playoff gamesmanship plenty of teams have a reason to phone it in this week, but who has the most to gain?

Winners draft first

The Rams have had the second pick in the draft for two years in a row. Maybe the number one pick is just the stroke of luck they need.

A Ram named Suh?

Teams with playoff berths wrapped up decide how hard to play, the St. Louis Rams play for Ndamukong Suh.

Roll over, Cincy

Bengals shouldn't tip their hard to the Jets.

Losers lose

Winning is a habit -- you don't develop it from worrying about draft position.

Rams ready to Suh

If there's one team that would benefit from a Week 17 loss above any other, it's the St. Louis Rams to the Lions away from Suh.

Bengals, maybe

The Bengals may play the Jets again next Sunday in the playoffs, so going all out to win might not be their best option.
